Dr. Saud Hilal Al-Harbi, Director-General of ALECSO, gave a TV interview to France 24 on September 11, 2018.
The interview focused on the Director-General’s publications, his educational and cultural areas of interest, and the application of his expertise and experience as an Arab thinker.
Dr. Al-Harbi highlighted the main concerns that need to be given special attention, especially in the field of education, in order to establish the foundations, strategies and plans that help Member States to develop and improve their educational systems, as part of the implementation of Goal 4 of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
Dr. Al-Harbi evaluated the degree of success of educational policies in the Arab World, and highlighted the importance of promoting the teaching of Arabic language in France and developing the relevant curricula in French schools.
Dr. Al-Harbi indicated that ALECSO has developed educational curricula that help the children of Arab immigrants in Europe to learn Arabic and achieve better integration in their societies. The contents of these curricula advocate the values of moderation and coexistence, and reject all forms of violence, extremism and terrorism which go against the sublime values and teachings of Islam. They have a universal dimension that promotes respect for and interaction with the other, in the service of the interests of all Mankind.
